Pros

You will find a great deal of hard working and experienced employees (mid level management and below) who have come from other great companies. Everyone is under a great deal of stress from upper managment but supports one another to maintain a positive atmosphere.

Cons

The company/hotels are VERY new and turnover is VERY high. The hotels rarely make budget and every month/quarter that budget is not made, finger pointing begins. Stress is very high with little importance on employee growth. During the interview process they will rave about immediate potential for growth but this is rare since you are not likely able to maintain employment long enough to move forward. Perform immediately or be let go immediately! Upper management constantly lies to cover their butts and unfortunately the employees suffer. This is not your normal hotel... In Sales, they have to complete Quarterly Action Plans, Weekly Sales Plans and Daily Traces which are combed through with a fine tooth comb. EVERYTHING is criticized on a weekly basis so be ready to constantly be on the defense!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more training and tools so that employees can have a chance to grown "within" your company. Training needs to be consistent and continual with an emphasis on good attributes within employees and less on mistakes made by them.

    Pros

    Gorgeous hotels, no expense is too much to bring this babies up, good enviroment for the most part.

    Cons

    Once opened you are pretty much on your own except for the contant change of strategies, enough to leave your head spinning for weeks. Bunch of amateurs directing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the basics and why you hired talent to start with. It is discouraging to be under utilized and knowing there is not much room to grow. Re-organize some of the knuckle heads that are running your company!
